The Chat nut Burr of 19^0 is here dedicated 

to tJje new 


which was established by the Legislature of 

Ohio ill 1929. 

It has been said of Ohio that it was the 
last state in the Union to provide itself with 
state normal schools, as it was not until 1910 
that our Legislature made the first move of 
this sort by voting such schools for Kent and 
for Bowling Green. 

It can now be said of Ohio that it was 
the first state in the Union to substitute 
state colleges for its state normal schools, 
that students who wished to be trained in 
the Arts and in the Sciences might receive 
such training in the same school with those 
students who are being trained to be teach- 

This new college experiment is just fin- 
ishing its first year; and since it has brought 
us an increased enrollment of students, and 
enriched our courses of study, and broadened 
our outlook on life, we are dedicating this 
1930 Number of the Chestnut Burr to the 


Kent State's First Liberal Arts College 
Student Group. 


Kent State College is set on a hill — 
To win to her door you must climb with a will, 
And Kent State hill is weariful long — 
But we trudge on together, a glad-hearted throng. 
Climbing the hill at Kent. 

Kent State portal is open wide; 
You've made the grade and you're safe inside — 
There's a clarion call to maiden and youth, 
For now is the time we begin, in truth. 
Climbing the hill at Kent. 

For, hills of the earth or hills of the soul. 
It is all the same, for they take their toll. 
One of the body and one of the mind. 
And the summit is hard to gain, we find. 
Climbing the hill at Kent. 

But keep a-stepping, and first you know, 
You are up on top where the cool winds blow, 
Below, farstretched, lies a wonderful view 
And glad are the eyes and the heart of you 
That you climbed the hill at Kent. 


The Campus 





Intelligence is unequally bestowed. Native endowments differ. Talents 
are unevenly distributed among any college or other group. But the race is 
not always won by those whom Nature selects as the swift. You may not 
realize it, but the ancient fable of the hare and the tortoise is illustrated anew 
every year on our own and every other campus. 

The tragedy of college life is that so many students who might be rated 
excellent are content with being good, and that others who could be good are 
only fair or average, sometimes even poor. 

College diplomas and college degrees have both intrinsic and marketable 
values which differ as widely as do the grades of wheat brought from the har- 
vest field to the elevators; or the fruit from the orchard after it has been grad- 
ed and sized for the market; or the coal that has passed over the screen after 
it has been mined. 

Two years or four in college offers one his finest opportunity for an edu- 
cation, but even more for making a reputation, for finding the tag by which 
he will long be labeled and appraised. They constitute an elaborate grading and 
sifting process as a result of which we go out ticketed "prime," "first class," 
"A one," or "seconds," "medium," "short," or something lower in the scale. 

Your actual value, your reputation and your marketability are determined 
by several factors, and of these, only one, your I. Q., seems to be fixed unal- 
terably. Your mdustry can rise or fall in the scale as you will have it. Depend- 
ability can be achieved if you think it worth while to do so. Politeness is as 
easy to learn and then make habitual in the life of the average as of the bril- 
liant student. Good health and good English, too, are within the reach of the 
rank and file of men and women. Friendliness, sympathy, patience, sincer- 
ity, cooperation, impartiality, idealism, desire to serve, - these and many other 
qualities increase or lack of them detracts from the marketability of the ser- 
vices of any teacher. High I. Q.'s never guarantee high scholarship, for such 
scholarship is likely to require persistent application, industry, hard work, if 
you please. But even high scholarship needs the re-enforcement which only 
such factors as those listed above can give to place and keep a teacher in the 
"preferred" class. 

— Dr. Engleman. 

The history of mathematics shows an in- 
teresting series of changes from the time it 
was strictly utiUtarian through the period 
when it was chiefly, "A handmaiden of 
Theology", to its present return to untili- 
tarian uses. 

Living, as we do, in an age of machines 
we find an increasing demand for courses 
stressing fact information and study of cer- 
tain and logical conclusions from accepted 
assumptions. It is reasonable to find, there- 
fore, that in our modern educational system 
mathematics holds an important place. 

At present we offer a wide variey of 
courses to meet the needs of those majoring 
in our various departments. These range 
from methods for presenting fundamental 
number ideas to children in the Kindergarten 
to the highly technical courses for those 
looking forward to the scientific vocations. 


Blanche A. Verder 

Graduates of 193 - For you we trust 
college has been no "finishing school", but 
a place of real beginings. If the opening of 
college meant the opening of your mind, if 
you have continued to welcome new truth, 
and ever to open your heart wider to friend- 
ship and your soul to the inflowing spirit, if 
the horizon of your entire being has widen- 
ed, then for you college has been a success- 
ful adventure. Now as you leave the cam- 
pus to enter into the unknown future, may 
you accept Robert Browning's challenge to 
"greet the unseen with a cheer." 

Now leaving all behind, facing to the dawninj;, 
Sons of dear Kent State, welcoming the morning. 

Seekers of Light, go forth! 
Heirs to the wisdom treasured through the ages, 
E'er scanning wisdom's book, searching thru the pages. 

Seekers of Truth, go forth! 
So college days well done, moved by noble vision, 
Our commonwealth to serve, this shall be your 

Seekers of Light and Truth, 

The aim of manual training is to develop 
thru actual participation in handwork, me- 
chanical intelligence in all pupils, irrespec- 
tive of their future vocations. 

The above statement of the aim of man- 
ual training is the guide for this department. 
All grade room and rural teachers should 
take work in this department. They are 
the ones who should give an increasing 
amount of this work in the schools of the 
state and they should be prepared to use it 
in motivating other lines of school work. 

The demand still exceeds the supply for 
men who can teach mechanical drawing, 
woodwork, metalwork, printing, simple me- 
chanics, fiber cord work, etc., and the de- 
partment aims to give a good preparation 
for such positions. 

J. T. Johnson, A. B. 

In the long period of time covering social 
development agriculture was among the earl- 
iest vocations which was clearly defined. The 
intimate relation between continued exist- 
ence and the food supply of people establish- 
es a permanent and basic interest. 

While the food getting activities are es- 
sential to satisfy human needs the vocation 
provides abundant opportunities to grow and 
mature in the higher levels of social and spi- 
ritual attainment. Agriculture is more than 
a vocation dealing with materials, it is a 
way of living. 

Agriculture as a vocation because the daily 
activities are clearly associated with nature 
provides a body of experience of sound edu- 
cational value. In viewing the subject of 
agriculture as a study of a mode of life 
economic values would obscure educational 
values. Since human aspirations transcend 
human needs the subject of agriculture is 
emphasized as means of education. 

The Department of History and Social 
Science has a two-fold aim. On the one 
hand it attempts to give to the prospective 
history teacher that sound and thorough 
grasp of the subject matter involved without 
which success as a history teacher is impos- 
sible. But on the other hand the department 
aims to help the general student to the cul- 
tural background which will enable him to 
live a well-rounded life and make him a 
more useful citizen. Through the medium of 
history the student learns to know the great 
writers of the past, to become acquainted 
with the great thinkers such as Plato, Aris- 
totle and Descartes, and to watch the growth 
of science from Archimedes through Roger 
Bacon to the wonders of the present. Thru 
history and its sister sciences, government, 
sociology and economics, the student watch- 
es the whole stream of human progress from 
the pyramids to the present and cannot help 
being the richer and the better equipped for 
his life work thereby.

The Department of English has added an- 
other year to its history. Professor Satter- 
field, who returned to us from Columbia 
University last year, has charge of the Fresh- 
men - their entrance examinations and their 
first year of English work. He has been as- 
sisted by Professor Davey, who has had to 
spend most of his time in the History and 
in the Latin departments. Prof. Edward 
Pake, formerly superintendent of the Dal- 
ton (Ohio) schools, has had charge of the 
Public Speaking and Debating. Prof. E. T. 
Griebling, formerly an instructor in Capital 
University, has had charge of the Dramatics 
and of the Journalism. He has been assisted 
on the "Kent Stater" by Alfred O. Hill. 
Miss Hyatt continues in charge of the Ele- 
mentary Methods in Reading and in Lan- 
guage, and Miss Tope continues in the Ex- 
tension work throughout the state. 


D. W. Pearce, A.m. 

The Department of Education and Psy- 
chology is striving dihgently to base its 
psychology firmly upon modern conceptions 
of biology. If it can succeed reasonably 
well in this, notable contributions may be 
made to the profession of teaching through 
the discovery and formulation of principles 
upon which methods of sound teaching pro- 
cedure may be based. In our basic courses in 
Principles of Education cognizance is taken 
of the changing needs of an industrial and 
economic civilization. The resulting con- 
ception of the aim of education is not, there- 
fore, some antiquated view long since dis- 
carded, but one fitted to present progress. 
In our courses in Organization and Manage- 
ment the attempt is made to put our stu- 
dents abreast of the times in modern theory, 
yet, by no means, to leave them in a wild- 
erness of "ologies" and "isms." As far as 
possible we desire that our students shall go 
out to their fields of labor with a realization 
of the tasks to be done, and a practicality 
that shall enable them to accomplish them

The art needs of the Child, the Comm 
State as given by the Art Director of 
state offers us a clear objective for the 
Art Department. 

FIRST— All need sense training and a fine dis- 
crimination in the selection, the purchase, and the 
use of manufactured articles for the person and the 
home. These may be described as 100% needs. 

SECOND— The community needs citizens who de- 
sire attractive homes, beautiful yards, parks, play- 
grounds, school buildings, museums, monuments, and 
all that contributes to civic beauty and civic pride. 

THIRD — The merchant needs salespeople with fine 
taste and sound aesthetic judgment, beautiful show 
windows, and attractive advertising, for these will 
"sell the goods". 

FOURTH — The manufacturer of textile: 
per, carpets, rugs, furniture, pottery, gl; 
ware, jewelry, lighting fixtures, and art i 
ducts requires designers and artistic crafs 
will make these products ever more bea 

FIFTH — The printing industry requires illustrators, 
designers of book and magazine covers, artistic maga- 
zines and poster advertising, and attractive labels for 
toilet preparations, food containers, etc. 

SIXTH — The State requires painters, sculptors, 
:ts, and museum directors. It requires teach- 
ers and supervisors of art for its elementary and sec- 
ondary schools, for its colleges and universities.

What have been the findings of the Mod- 
ern Foreign Language Study? To stress 
greatly the advisability of having the em- 
phasis in teaching placed upon training stu- 
dents to read as soon as possible. To urge 
this necessity even more in case the language 
is begun in college. 

Since the work of the French Department 
is planned to conform to these principles, it is 
possible very early in the course for students 
to begin to appreciate the spirit of France 
by seeing for themselves how national traits, 
characteristics and problems are viewed by 
some of the literary geniuses of that coun- 
try. Further progress increases the number 
of these points of interest and comparison. 
Time honored and modern writings open up 
new fields and interpretations of history, 
literature, science, art and travel. So one 
may dwell at home, but live beyond the

How big is your world? How far does 
your imagination soar? How deep does 
your understanding penetrate? To what ex- 
tent is your mind unshackled from super- 
stition and prejudice? The answer to these 
and many questions like them are functions 
of your geographic study and reading. Even 
to know where the places one reads of are, 
what their climate is and how they are peo- 
pled, is something; but in its wider mean- 
ing, as the science which aims at the ex- 
planation of the adjustment of man to his 
surroundings, there is no problem in past 
history or of present politics and economics 
which cannot be elucidated by the applica- 
tions of the principles of geography.

Bertha L. Nixson, M.A. 

The students welcomed the return of Ber- 
tha L. Nixon, head of the department, who 
has been absent on a year's leave which in- 
cluded study at Columbia and a summer's 
travel and study in Europe. 

Miss Nona Isabel Jordan is the new cloth- 
ing specialist. She is a graduate of Drake 
University and Columbia. 

While the primary purpose of the depart- 
ment is the training of teachers of home ec- 
onomics we are anxious to serve the ever in- 
creasing numbers of general students who 
are becoming more and more interested in 
the various phases of home economics. Sev- 
eral new courses have been introduced and a 
new minor for the general students has been 
added to the curriculum. 

Through the efforts of the students in the 
department the administration has sponsored 
a practice house for the major and minor 
students of home economics. Six students 
and a faculty representative enjoy the com- 
forts of home along with its responsibilities. 

September 1927 there has been 
on in this department. Two full-time instructors, 
Te in the College and one in the Training School, 
ded by part-time instructors in piano and voice, 
the staff of 1927. September 192 8 saw the 
addition of one instructor. Mr. Steere; and with 
September 1929 came two more, Miss Littlejohn and 
Mr. Metcalf. The present staff is composed of five- 
full-time instructors and a part-time instructor in 
voice. One room was used by the department in 
1927. Since then we have grown until four rooms 
are necessary to provide for our activities. With 
new teachers and new equipment has come the op- 
portunity to offer not only a major and a minor in 
the department but to take our places alongside some 
of our sister colleges in offering a four-year degree 
course in Music Education. In this one year more 
than a dozen students have enrolled in the depart- 
ment for these advanced courses. We realize that 
with this growth come new responsibilities. May we 
ever do more to make music a vital part in the life 
of this community, and through teachers who are 
keenly alive, may reach the hearts of children and 
thus have a widespread influence throughout all of 
north-eastern Ohio. 

A. L. Herr, A.B., M.A., Ph.D. 

The training department at present is re- 
sponsible for the courses in observation and 
in practice teaching. It is the purpose of 
the course in observation to integrate the 
various principles taught in psychology, 
classroom-management, and methods, and 
give them meaning by observing teaching 
and learning. It also aims to give the pros- 
pective teacher an opportunity to use these 
principles in analyzing teaching and learn- 
ing in the class room as a preparation for ac- 
tual teaching. It is here that the prospec- 
tive teacher attempts to apply principles in 
actual teaching and learning situations. 
Here the teacher is directed in acquiring 
those class room procedures which are ef- 
fective in teaching. 

Not all of the practice teaching is being 
done in the campus training school. At 
present the elementary schools in the City of 
Kent and the Franklin Township schools are 
being used for practice teaching. This year 
a supervisor has been added to the training 
school faculty who supervises the practice 
teaching done in off campus schools.

The Department of Physical Sciences at 
Kent State College offers in regular courses 
102 term hours in Chemistry and 30 term 
hours in Physics. In addition special courses 
are arranged for students who have the nec- 
essary preparation for profitably pursuing 
the work. Students who are working off pre- 
medical or engineering requirements here 
find exactly the work they need. The earli- 
er courses are presented with emphasis on 
the method of teaching these fundamental 
sciences. It is intended to give in these 
courses the training in the presentation of 
the facts and principles which will equip 
one for successfully teaching these sciences 
in the high schools. Those students who are 
looking forward to careers in the applied 
sciences will find in the more advanced 
courses work equivalent to similar courses 
in the colleges and universities. Laboratory 
facilities are unexcelled and much emphasis 
is given to individual laboratory work. 


G. Hazel Swan, B.S. 

It is very gratifying to announce that the 
Kindergarten-Primary Department now has 
twenty-two students registered for three and 
four year work. 

All of these students are active members 
of the Kindergarten-Primary Club which 
was organized in February 1929. The aim 
of this group is to help in every way pos- 
sible the Nursery - Kindergarten - Primary 
causes or the work with young children. 
The club has a number of interesting plans 
for the year to render service. 

This student club is a branch of The In- 
ternational Kindergarten Union and is one 
of a few student branches belonging to the 
international body. Last May the club sent 
two delegates to the international meetings 
at Rochester, New York. This year it is 
sending one to Memphis, Tennessee. 

It is the hope of the department that an- 
other instructor may be added soon so that 
all the courses of the department may be 
given to keep this fine, earnest group of 
twenty-two young women. 

Margaret Dunbar, B.L. 

During the last week of August 1929 the 
library of Kent State College was moved 
from the Administration Building where it 
had had its home for twelve years to the 
new David Ladd Rockwell Building which 
had been especially designed and built to 
house it and to provide a pleasant place in 
which it might be used. 

The building has proved well fitted to 
the purpose for which it was planned and 
dedicated; its beauty is a joy to every stu- 
dent; its proportions, colors, ample light, 
heat, ventilation, and noiseless floors unob- 
trusively give comfort and pleasure to every- 
one who uses it. 

The library, now numbering over forty 
thousand volumes, is growing to meet the 
new requirements of the College and with 
adequate appropriations which will be made 
from time to time will be able to meet the 
needs of students in all courses and to sup- 
ply also recreational reading. 

H. A. Cunningham, B.S., M.A. 

There are many big themes in biology; 
one of which is the "Behavior of Organ- 
isms". Human education, since it deals 
with ways and means of modifying the be- 
havior of conscious human beings, is really 
one subdivision of biology. Every one should 
be interested in making a superior adjust- 
ment to his environment; in adjustmg his 
environment to himself; and in understand- 
ing, and influencing, at times the behavior 
of others. 

The prospective teacher is immediately in- 
terested in biology as a fundamental aid in 
the solution of classroom behavior problems 
and "as an introduction to such subjects 
as hygiene, nature study, physical education, 
psychology, and child study." Biology is 
prevocational to such other occupations as 
agriculture, dentistry, medicine, forestry, 
etc., because these occupations are based up- 
on fundamental laws and principles of bio-

The activities of this department may be 
classed as: 

1. Teacher-Placement 

2. Supervision of recent graduates in 

the field 

3. Directing home study department 

4. Arranging for extension class centers 

5. Alumni activities 

6. Field relations 

During the spring and summer terms, a 
very large part of the time is given to a sur- 
vey of teaching needs and a study of the 
qualifications of candidates. All members 
of the present graduating class are urged to 
enroll with the Teacher-Placement Bureau. 
Its advice and help is available also to for- 
mer graduates and undergraduates. 

An effort is made to make a continuous 
check-up on graduates. It is hoped that 
the college will be able to publish a directory 
of all graduates some time next year. 

John L. Blair, A.B., M.A. 

To reduce as much as possible of adminis- 
trative activity to routine is to raise to a 
maximum the availability of the administra- 
tion for those activities which cannot prop- 
erly be carried on in routine manner. 

Applied to the Office of the Registrar, 
this is to say that the particular problems 
of individual students can be given fullest 
attention when the problems and activities 
common to the whole school are carried for- 
ward according to habitual, established pro- 
cedures. The student body therefore op- 
erates in its own interest when it is care- 
ful to follow the established plan in all pos- 
sible situations, and to raise the question of 
special need only after discovering that no 
regular procedure is available. Under such 
conditions are the objectives of the school 
and the stvident body best attained.

I believe that the year 193 will go down 
in the athletic history of Kent State College 
as the one of greatest achievement. While 
our teams have made a creditable showing 
in competition, our greatest achievement has 
undoubtedly come through the efforts of 
the Athletic Committee in obtaining a mem- 
bership in the Ohio Athletic Conference of 
Colleges. Early in October, Dr. De Weese 
and Mr. Davey attended a meeting of this 
conference and presented our case, with the 
result that we as a College were granted the 
customary probationary membership of one 
year, after which we will automatically be- 
come a member in full standing. This 
Conference is composed of a group of Col- 
leges such as Akron, Mt. Union, Hiram, 
Oberlin, and other leading Colleges of the 
state, which have organized for the advance- 
ment of the type and quality of intercolleg- 
iate athletics in the State of Ohio. This 
means that for the first time in its history 
Kent State College will have an athletic eli- 
gibility rule, the one year residence rule, 
and, above all, will compete with other Col- 
leges in this district and state on an equal 

The modern business world is based upon 
a money economy. As our country becomes 
more industrialized, business forges ahead 
more and more as a distinctive field. In 
fact business is showing signs of becoming 
a profession. To meet these new conditions 
scientific training is mandatory. The old 
apprenticeship system required too much. 
It was inefficient in that it lacked standard- 
ization which is necessary in modern mass 

Again, the old education was largely cul- 
tural. It was for the gentleman. Today 
one must commercialize his education. In 
other words it must make him a living. 
Then it is imperative that one be specifically 
qualified to do something well. 

For these reasons a commercial education 
should receive the serious attention of every 
young man and young woman in choosing 
their life work. It may be used in the pro- 
fession of teaching or in a business career. 
In either case a college training in business 
is a gilt-edge investment and opens up limit- 
less opportunities professionally and finan-

The Women's League of Kent State College has sponsored the Big and Little 
Sister Teas that have been given each term. They ran a series of "Sunset Dances" 
during the winter term, which everyone enjoyed very much. The tenth of January 
a "New Year's Ball" was given with fine success. 

The Mothers' and Fathers' entertainment of May 10th and 11th was sponsored 
by the Women's League. 

The Officers are — President, Olive Taylor; Vice President, Maxine Moore; Sec- 
retary, Helen MacCurdy; Treasurer, Elizabeth Williams; Representatives: Maxine Hen- 
derson, Helen Eastwood, Ann Stone, Ruth Geib, Marion Palmer, Adelaide Walker, 
May Landon, Elizabeth Freeman.

This Organization was revised as to the number of members this year. There 
are at present 4 men members and 4 women members. The men were chosen to 
represent each men's organization on the campus, the women to represent each 
women's organization not including each sorority - but one woman represents all 
Sororities, one the Women's League, one Off Campus and one the Dormitories. 

The Council has worked hard in order to promote debating and to promote as 
far as possible Kent State's customs. Freshman Assembly was put into the calendar 
the College. As far as the Council at present knows this assembly will continue into 
the future as a custom for Freshmen. 

The Council was instrumental in putting across the Red Cross drive which was 
a success. 

We have made plans for the revision of the College hand book contents of which 
the students will be responsible for. The Council met once a month to discuss prob- 
lems arising and to solve them as much as it was in their power to do so. The Council 
is becoming more and more an important organization on Kent State's Campus. It has 
more and more power each year which is a sign of a growing institution.

This organization, which is composed of girls living off-campus, is one of the 
oldest and most active in the college. Its purpose is to give its members the same 
opportunities for social contact as are enjoyed by the girls who room in the dormi- 
tories. The club room in Merrill hall affords a place of rest and recreation for all 

Some of the annual affairs which the club sponsors are the Harvest Dance in the 
fall, the Pop entertainment. Home-coming banquet, and the May breakfast. This 
year the club inaugurated a series of parties, which included a Christmas Party, St. 
Patrick's Day Party and a Chinese Supper. The Pop entertainment of this year in- 
cluded a play "The Good Woman" which attracted much attention by its excellent 

The club officers for the fall term were: president, Elizabeth Truscott; vice- 
president, Jeanette Riddle; secretary, Grace Barker; and treasurer Lucille Truscott. 
In the winter term the new officers were: president, Alice Hinds; vice-president, Laura 
Limbert; secretary, Greta Wolf, and treasurer, Jeanette Riddle. 


This association is composed of four representatives from each sorority on the 
campus, including president, faculty advisor and two other members. Miss Verder 
is an honorary member. 

Each office is held in rotation by the sororities, according to the official roll. 
Officers for 1929-30 are: President, Kathryn Welch - Pi Kappa Sigma; Recording 
Secretary, Thelma Brezgar - Alpha Sigma Tau; Corresponding Secretary, Ruth Buehler - 
Pi Delta Theta; Treasurer, Rebecca Oblonsky - Phi Epsilon. Faculty Advisor - Miss 
Naffs - Theta Sigma Upsilon. Officers for next year have not been elected. 

The purposes of Panhellenic are: 

1. To encourage all Sororities to take an active interest in all school and college 
activities for the common good. 

2. To act as a court of appeal in the case of sorority difficulties and to regulate 
other matters pertaining to sorority life. 

Each year the sorority having the highest scholarship has its name engraved on the 
scholarship cup and the cup remains in its possession for the year. Phi Epsilon holds 
the cup for 1929-30. 

At the beginning of the year we had nine sororities represented in the Association. 
Alpha Phi Alpha, a local, became inactive. At present we have eight active sororities. 
A new local is being organized but the name is not known. 

Kathryn Welch, President. 

The Y. W. C. A. of 1929-1930 had the largest membership and most successful 
year in its history. The membership hovers about the hundred mark. The meetings 
have been very well attended as a very successful program was worked out. 

During the academic year, Y activities have included the annual welcome picnic 
in the college woods, a party for the children at the Portage County Detention Home, 
Ravenna, in October, and a program for the Summit County Home for the Aged; the 
packing of the Caney Creek box in November to which every sorority on the campus 
contributed a package and which was sent to the community center of the Caney Creek 
Pippa Pan, Kentucky, a box being included for Miss Brysen, who attended the college 
in 1929; and the Christmas Bazaar held at Moulton Hall in December; in January the 
Caney Creek Crusaders were our guests, having charge of Assembly program and giving 
a play in the evening. 

The regular Y meeting is held on Wednesday evening. During the year varied 
programs have been given. Dean Blanche A. Verder, the Y adviser. Professor Pake of 
the English Department, Miss Belle Rowlen, French Instructor, Miss Kennedy, a student 
at the college, formerly a social worker in Youngstown, and Miss Hazel Myers of the 
national Y.W.C.A., former secretary in China were among the speakers on these occa- 

The officers of the club are: President, Elizabeth Ludt; Vice-President, Charlotte 
Wahl; Secretary, Martha Maier; Treasurer, Cornelia Stewart. 

The various chairmen of the committees are as follows: Anna Hinely, Helen East- 
wood, Dorothy McClelland, Violet Fisher, Cora Ridgeway, Geneva Byers, Cedella Books. 

The Y. M. C. A. wis organized in the fall of 1929. This is the first successful 
attempt toward the formation of a club of this type. 

The officers for the year 1929-30 were as follows: 

President, M. E. Blouch; Vice-President, Franklin Williams; Secretary, Clayton 
Alden; Treasurer, Irvin Overholt; Council Representative, Delbert Cline. 

Faculty advisors: Prof. Edward Pake and Prof. C. E. Satterfield. 

In the first year's work the club has laid a substantial foundation for a Y.M.C.A. 
which will be a truly representative College Organization. 


Le Cerclc Francais made its appearance on the campus early in 192 8, being spon- 
sored by students in the French department. Its purpose is to develop sociability, good 
fellowship, and an appreciation of all things French. 

The club meets the second and fourth Thursdays of each month. Its programs 
usually consist of papers on different phases of French life, varied with play evenings 
of French games and songs. 

Susan Lewis and Marjorie Brigstock have sreved as presidents of the club during 
the year. They have been ably assisted by Kathryn Warner and Catherine Walker 
as vice-Presidents, and Virginia Russell, secretary-treasurer and Martha Duobin as sec- 
retary-treasurer. Miss Rowlen has acted as advisor and taken an active interest in 
affairs of the club since its beginning, and is deserving of a full share of credit for the 
success of the organization. 

Ten students of Kent State College participated in the seventh national chemistry 
essay contest, sponsored by Mr. Francis Garvin of New York. 

The contest is open to all students of teacher-training institutions, there being six 
subjects with three prizes given for each subject. They are: Relations of Chemistry to 
Agriculture; Relations of Chemistry to the Enrichment of Life; Relations of Chemistry 
to National Defense; Relations of Chemistry to Industry; Relations of Chemistry to 
Medicine and Relations of Chemistry to the Home. 

Last year John Urban won a prize of $300 for his paper on "Relations of Chemistry 
to National Defense." (This was the second time in succession that he brought one 
of these prizes to Kent State College.) The contestants this year included: Earl Bar- 
nett, Delbert Cline, Anne Conrad, Luella Conzette, Lucy Duck, Kenneth Hiestand, 
Isabel Kennedy, Eldon Scoutten, Walter Shammo, and Eleanor Stone. 

Under the direction and inspiration of Prof. C. F. Rumold the participants sub- 
mitted acceptable essays to the national headquarters. As an additional stimulus. Prof. 
Rumold offered two term hours credit in chemistry to encourage research in this pro- 
fitable activity.

The Kent State Home Economics club has been very active this year. The mem- 
bers have taken great interest in the new practice house which was opened the first of 
the year. Many of the social and business meetings of the club are held there. In Jan- 
uary the girls of the club participated in the style show given in assembly to illustrate 
correct and incorrect modes of modern dress, according to type. The concessions for 
the college ball games and the county and district tournaments were granted to the 
club. Money earned at these events will be used either to help furnish the practice 
house or to send one or more delegates to the Denver convention. 

The constitution has been revised so as to provide for honorary and associate mem- 
bership. To date the following are our honorary members: Neda B. Freeman, Mary 
Klepinger, Winnigene Wood, and Lucile Pearce Jacob. The associate list is gradually 
growing in numbers. 

The officers of the club are: President, Sarah Morgan; Vice-president, Gladys 
Bowman; Secretary, Roberta Churchward; Treasurer, Catherine Cummings. 

The club is affiliated with the American Home Economics Association and was 
represented at the state meeting held in Cleveland in January.

The Literary Club was organized at Kent State during the Fall quarter of 1929 
by Marian L. Frederick. The club meets once each month for a business meeting and 
once monthly for a discussion meeting. Its meeting place is the Senior Room of the 
library. The subjects discussed by the club are modern literature, poetry, drama and 
current happenings of the world. Its aim is to form a broader and more cultured 
group, both socially and intellectually. 

The graduating members hope for the continued growth and success of this or-

This year our debating teams took on increased responsibility with the coming 
of an expert coach in the person of Mr. Edward Pake. About twenty students an- 
swered his call early in January and up to the time of this writing, four debates have 
been held. 

Our first two, with Mount Union, we lost. Our second and last pair, with Bald- 
win-Wallace, we won. 

The teams were composed of James Holm, Phil Barry, Watt Bair, Arthur Steere, 
and Eldon Scoutten. Back of the team, and directly responsible for thtir success were 
the other members in the class whose untiring efforts proved an inspiration to the 

Last year debating at Kent was born, this year it has grown into a young man and 
in next and in succeeding years its real place is to be felt. No official recognition 
has yet geen granted to our teams by the school but with coming years we sincerely 
hope some such award will be granted. 

The Kent State Band of 1929-3 enjoyed its largest membership and success under 
the able leadership of Mr. Roy D. Metcalf. Since its organization in the Fall Quarter 
the Band furnished Kent Staters with vim and vigor on the football field, at the 
basketball games, and in numerous assemblies. "Campus" Night was greatly aided by 
the Band's snappy music. 

The Beginners' Band, a new feature at Kent State, provided the willing student 
with instrument and instruction which quickly enabled him to take an active place 
in the College Band.

The Kent Stater, student publication of Kent State college, is a student publica- 
tion intended to reflect campus happenings and to provide a conservative means of ex- 
pressing student opinion. 

The year 1929-30 was one of the most out-standing in the history of the college. 
Alfred O. Hill started out as editor, and after completing three years in this capacity, 
resigned. He was succeeded by John Urban, who had been his close associate for more 
than two years. 

The paper this year was more a journal by students and for students than ever 
before. The large staff, usually composed of about fifteen members, was truly repre- 
sentative of school spirit at Kent. Doris Cavanaugh, society editor, Harold Jones, 
news editor, Joe Kelly, sports editor in the spring quarter, and Kaye Waite deserve spe- 
cial mention in this field, as does Katherine Schwartz. All worked hard to improve 
the Stater. 

Prof. E. T. Griebling, the new faculty advisor, proved invaluable with his timely 
advice and help. New equipment, including a cabinet and telephone, are marks of the 
progress which is being made.

The Physical Education Club is not a new organization at Kent. It was started 
some three or four years ago, but was not particularly active until the last year. 

It consists of Physical Education students and two faculty advisors, one man and 
one woman. The officers for the past year were: President, Wm. Searl; Vice-President, 
Carroll Crombie; Secretary-Treasurer, Catherine Conroy. Faculty Advisors were Mr. 
Altman and Mrs. Apple. 

During the past year several very interesting meetings have been held. Each quar- 
ter the Club tries to hold two meetings, one for business and one for pleasure and dis- 
cussion of interesting topics of the day in physical education. 

Last fall a meeting was held at the Franklin Hotel. At this affair the Alumni phy- 
sical educationers and Dr. D. Oberteuffer, State Director of Health and Physical Edu- 
cation were guests speakers. 

In the winter quarter a combination business and pleasure meeting was held at Mrs. 
M. Apple's home. Several important topics were discussed at this time, after which the 
girls and Mrs. Apple fed the gang on sandwiches and coffee. 

The activity of the club in the spring quarter consisted of a business meeting at 
the school, followed by a wiener roast in the college woods. 

officers: President, Lucille Hendricks; Vice-president, Dorothy Wolfe; Secretary, 
Carrie Combie; Treasurer, Dorothy Stadler; Faculty Advisor, Marie Apple. 

The Kent branch of the National Women's Athletic Association was organized in 
May, 1928, for the purpose of furthering the national motto, "Play for Play's Sake," 
and to develop an interest in women's intra-mural sports at Kent State. 

The organization made its grand opening of the year in the fall term with a picnic 
to which all the women of the college were invited. The event was held in the college 
woods, and about three hundred were present. 

An interesting and varied program was presented to the members of the group 
throughout the year. Activities typical of the season were ardently participated in, in 
addition to which other events were given. There were four dancing clubs, and one 
swimming club. 

Several important all-college functions were held under the auspices of the organiza- 
tion. A swimming meet, a play night, a track meet and a gym meet were some of the 
more important events. A circus held in the gym provided entertainment of a new type. 

At the present time plans are being made for an intercollegiate play day, to which 
ten colleges are being invited. It is hoped that representatives from neighboring institu- 
tions will come here to help make the project a success. Nothing of the kind has ever 
been done at Kent before, and therefore the event will be watched with interest. 

The Kindergarten-Primary Club is composed of girls who are majoring in Kinder- 
garten-Primary work. The local club is affiliated with the International Kindergarten 
Union. The Kindergarten-Primary Club was organized in February, of 1929, and in 
the Spring of that year sent two delegates to Buffalo, N. Y. to the Convention of the 
I. K. U. These delegates were Miss Katherine Evans, who was the first president of 
the Club, and Miss Dorothy Ott. 

The Kindergarten-Primary Club is primarily interested in promoting the best in- 
terests of small children, and in making a study of their characteristics and needs. 

The officers are: President, Katherine Evans; Vice President, Jean Leavenworth, 
also acting president in Miss Evans' absence; Margaret Carroll, recording secretary; 
and Elizabeth Ludt, treasurer.

"The Adoration of the King", a pageant was presented by the Girls of Lowry Hall, 
December IS, 1929. It was under the supervision and Dean Verder; Mrs. Elizabeth 
Zellers directing the chorus which sang during the play. The cast was directed by 
Lois Burger. Marie Johnson had charge of the properties. It is planned to make this 
a yearly event. The Cast consisted of: 

Geneva Byers, Reader; Betty Dutro, Joseph; Cora Ridgeway, Mary; Winifred But- 
ler, Ruth Buehler, Lena Hiedelberg — Kings; Daisy Armitage, Ruth Stevens, Rose Marin-

The Women's Chorus is open to anyone who is interested and can sing. This 
group together with members from the Mixed Chorus sang a Christmas Cantata during 
the Christmas season and furnished special numbers for the pageant staged by the De- 
partment of Physical Education in April. The Mixed Chorus had its beginning in the 
latter half of the fall term when the Men's Chorus combined with a picked group from 
the Women's Chorus. The membership ranges from thirty to forty members, as the 
personnel changes from quarter to quarter. 

This group of students appeared on assembly programs throughout the year and 
in May took part in the production of Coleridge Taylor's "Hiawatha's Wedding Feast" 
by Kent Festival Chorus. 

The above picture is the Mixed Chorus for the winter quarter. 

In the fall of nineteen hundred twenty-nine a group of men met one evening in 
the corrective gym in Science Hall and founded the "Independents of Kent State." 
These men choose as their aim the betterment of the physical and social life of the men 
of Kent State who were not affiliated with other fraternal organizations on the cam- 
pus. As an organization, they believed that they would be better able to cooperate 
with the school, faculty, and other organizations in things pertaining to school life 
and the betterment of Kent State. 

The members are at perfect liberty to come and go as they choose. The affairs 
of the organization are managed so as to make the burden as light as possible upon the 
supporters. Although this organization is as yet in its infancy, its future appears most

This, the Kent State Double Quartet, was organized in the Winter Terms of 193 0. 
Its purpose is to represent the College by furnishing music for engagements in and 
about the City where a larger group would be unsuitable. The Music Department has 
co-operated and the group has filled several engagements. The members of the Group 
are Marion Knecht, Mary Maude Lossee, Martha Maler, Elizabeth Scharon, Arthur 
Tumpach, M. E. Blauch, Merle Leggett, Arthur Steere.

This number of the Chestnut Burr gives a few touches of Indian hfe. 
Of course there are enough general reasons to justify this, but the special 
reason is that our school is located on an old Indian path. This path 
came across the river at Standing Rock, and came up across the campus 
nearly where the front driveway is, and continued on through where 
the Administration building now is, the heating plant also, and then 
on back through the school farm. Some marks of it may still be seen back 
in the woods and through the farm. This path and the arrow-heads 
picked up occasionally are the only evidences of this primitive life left 
to us.

Delta Phi Sigma is the first local fraternity on the campus to own its home. The 
house, located at 262 Columbus street, is near the campus, and amply suited to the needs 
of the fraternity. 

The Delta Phi Sigma fraternity was founded at Kent State March 19, 1924, and 
in the six years since its founding it has grown from a small group of thirteen men to 
one of the largest and finest organizations on the campus, with a membership of nearly 
a hundred. 

The fraternity went into its first home in 1926, the house being located on Summit 
street. In 1929 a house on DePeyster street was leased, while on January first, 1930, 
the location was changed to the home which it now owns. 

The Delta Phi Sigma house is comfortably furnished, and is always open to all 
visitors with the typical cordial hospitality which characterizes the fraternity.

Alpha Beta Chapter of Sigma Sigma Sigma Sorority is the oldest sorority chapter 
at Kent State, having been installed November 5, 6, 7, 1925. It has already been di- 
rectly responsible for two alumnae chapters, at Kent and at Youngstown. 

1929-1930 started with twelve active members, adding one during the winter 
when an old member returned to school. Three rush parties were given during the 
year. The first was an Indian party, a direct result of the reports of Ruth Geib, rep- 
resentative at the National Convention held during the summer at Santa Fe, New 
Mexico. It was given in October. The second rush party was a kid party held at the 
Elgin home as the birthday party of the chapter. The third one, also at the Elgin 
home, was an all-around-the-year party held in January. Thirteen girls were pledged 
thruout the year, thus doubling the chapter. January 18th, the pledges entertained the 
actives with a theatre party in Akron, and a supper afterwards in Kaase's private dining

On October 16, 1924, six girls headed by Miss Foote, organized a Greek-letter so- 
ciety, choosing as its name Alpha Kappa Phi. 

It was mainly through the efforts of Miss Foote and Dean Verder that on January 
13th, 1925, the college officials recognized Alpha Kappa Phi and permitted it to be 
represented in the annual. Thus Kent State's first Greek-letter society came into exist- 

During the summer of 192 5 National Educational Sororities were allowed to enter 
Kent State. Early in the fall of that year Miss Verder recommended Alpha Kappa 
Phi to the Delta Sigma Epsilon National Sorority. On October 13 th we petitioned na- 
tional with this sorority and on February 13th, 1926 eighteen girls became charter 
members and six became pledges of Tau Chapter, Delta Sigma Epsilon. 

We now total seventy-three members.

The Eta Chapter of the Alpha Sigma Tau sorority has for the past school year 
maintained its ideals and upheld its standards well. 

At the beginning of the year there were eight active members. At the close of 
the fall rushing season nineteen girls were pledged to the sorority. 

Initiation was held on March first and second: Informal at Beckwith's Cabin, 
formal at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Manchester. Seventeen girls, including Miss Rob- 
ertson, the faculty advisor, became members. At this time three pledges were taken in. 

The sorority gave three rush parties during the year. On February 27th the pledges 
entertained the actives with a night club party at the Robinhood Inn. An All-Greek- 
Letter Balloon Dance was sponsored by the Alpha Sigma Tau Sorority and the Sigma 
Tau Gamma Fraternity on April 11th.

Five years of service! May we return after another five years and find Coach 
Wagoner still on the job. During those hard years of fighting to obtain the place for 
Old Kent State which we all desire her to fill. Coach Wagoner has accomplished won- 

No longer do other colleges who have traditions and reputations ask "Where and 
what is Kent State?" No! Due to Coach Wagoner's great efforts many schools with 
enviable records are thinking twice before deciding to take a chance and schedule Old 
Kent State. 

And to Coach Wagoner goes the lion's share of the glory, who, from each disap- 
pointment, becomes more determined to conquer. At last Coach Wagoner has been 
able to have Old Kent admitted to the Ohio Conference, and State has made a fine 
showing in her debut. The sincere wish of this class of 1930 is that Coach Wagoner 
will be able to secure the necessary supplies and equipment so that he can place Kent 
high among the leaders. 

Coach Wagoner and Old Kent State have been very fortunate to secure such a 
popular and capable assistant coach as Joe who hails from Ohio U., one of Kent's 

While attending Ohio U., Begala certainly made an outstanding record. He 
secured his A. B. degree in '29. While at Ohio U. Joe won three letters in football 
and was named All-Buckeye guard in '28. He was also state heavyweight champion 
in '27 and '28 and state champion of the 165 lb. class in '29. In '28 and '29 Joe 
was captain of Ohio U's wrestling squad. 

But Joe is not only accomplished in athletics. He wears the Torch Pin, a much 
coveted award of Ohio University for all-around scholastic ability. 

Begala has proven himself no mean coach in this his first year at coaching. The 
class of '30 sure wishes him many long years of success.

Are we discouraged? Never! While this season's showing was far from im- 
pressive, we get much consolation from the fact that the men who carried Kent's 
colors this season were getting much valuable experience. It is the history of every 
college with a small enrollment of men that some years are "building years." And 
that is what last season was for Kent. Practically the entire team will be back next 
year to open Kent's first season of Ohio Conference football and we know that Old 
Kent will finish near the top. 

But, despite the fact that Kent won only one game during the entire season, we 
find much consolation in looking over the record. Kent had a very heavy schedule to 
fulfill and only played two games at home and neither of these were played on Rock- 
well Field. 

Akron U, Oberlin, John Carrol, and Heidelberg always are among the strongest 
in the state and all of them knew they had played a fighting team when the whistle 
ended the games between them and Old Kent. None found Old Kent to be the week 
of rest they had picked the season before on their schedule and their seconds got the 
vacation instead of their varsities. 

Arthur Stejskal, Halfback Elmer Dunlevy, Guard 
Clyde Hall, Einl Chas Kii bourne, Fullback Kermit Taylor, Guard 

Honorary Capt. 

In the next to the last game of the season Kent met the strong undefeated 
Baldwin Wallace team. This great team Kent held to an 18 to score and on two oc- 
casions Old Kent seriously threatened to score. 

The most heart breaking game of the season was probably the game played at 
Akron. Akron U won the game 2 5 to 0. Kent wanted badly to beat Akron as the 
season before Akron had won on breaks while Kent made sixteen first downs to 
Akron's three. But we are a bunch of optimists and firmly believe that the boys of 
the Rubber City are due for a trimming in the Fall. 

For this year Kent is taking a great stride forward to strengthen her football. 
This spring, spring football was inaugurated at Kent State. Practically all good teams 
have realized the benefit of drilling the squad in the fundamentals of football in 
the spring. 

A very good showing of men turned out for this spring practice despite the fact 
of competition of track and baseball; together with football these sports have attracted 
nearly every available man of the small number enrolled. Another year or two and 
this problem will be only history for Kent. 

A very regretable feature of football at Kent State is nearly all games are play- 
ed away from home. For the second consecutive year only two football games have 
been played in Kent by the team. This places a great burden on the team because 
the games are played on strange territory which makes it more difficult to have a 
winning season. 

James Hagf.rdon, End Jake Searl, Quarterback 

James Mennow, Halfback Frank Fanelli, Guard Ted Sapp, Tackle 

These games must be played away from home, due mainly, to the lack of a suit- 
able playing field. This condition is one that should be remedied at once for the bene- 
fit of the entire school. The team misses the support of the student body when play- 
ing in foreign territory and the student body misses the enjoyment of the fine brand 
of football displayed by Kent's team. 

The whole school is anxiously looking forward 
to the time when Kent will be able to erect her 
own stadium and thus enable the students and fac- 
ulty to enjoy more games of the splendid type Old 
Kent puts up.

At last!! We have all longed to see Old Kent a member of the Ohio Conference. 
And that greatly desired condition was brought into actual existence with the open- 
ing of the basketball season. 

Hiram was the first Conference victim of Old Kent, followed shortly by Kenyon 
and Marietta. Conference games were lost to Kenyon, Akron U., and Mt. Union. 
Mount Union defeated our boys twice in hard fought, thrilling battles. Three games 
were won and four lost in the Conference for a percentage of .42 8. A splendid record 
and one to be proud of for our first season of Ohio Conference competition. 

The season's record was not as good as in as some former years however, as, being 
on probation, no freshmen were allowed to play. But we may well look forward to 
next year with greater elation when our present freshmen become eligible for the 
Varsity because many and many a time did the freshmen drub the Varsity in practice

Perhaps no more fitting compliment could be paid to Kent State than the follow- 
ing article clipped from the Marietta Times, written by a Marietta sports writer: 

"The 3 5 to 26 defeat sustained at the hands of Kent State on Saturday night was 
no discredit to the Pioneer team. 

It was defeated by a better basketball team in a cleanly played, hard fought out 
game that wasn't decided until the final moments of the game when four baskets in 
rapid succession piled up Kent State's winning margin and decided the game in favor 
of the upstate aggregation. 

Kent had a mighty fine team led by Lou Hall, gigantic center who towered six 
feet four inches high, weighed near the 200 pound mark and made Bill Longsworth, 
Marietta center, seem puny by comparison. At three different times during the game 
Kent had five men on the floor, all of whom towered six feet or better. 

And how these lanky boys did speed it up. They played real basketball, they play- 
ed it clean, they won fairly and squarely and there was no bitter after-taste for the 
Pioneers in losing to an aggregation such as that of Coach Wagoner. 

The entire atmosphere was different than at Cleveland. The Mariettans got a 
hand when they came on the floor and another when they left. If they made a good 
play the crowd applauded it just as they applauded those of the home team. 

While it is never a pleasure to lose a game, the loss to Kent was certainly far from 
a bitter one to the Pioneers."

old Kent State enjoyed a very good baseball season under the tutelage of Coach 
Wagoner. Kent especially rejoiced over two shut-out victories over Hiram and Bald- 

Kent derived great satisfaction also by taking two games from her old rival, Akron 
U. But the greatest game of the season was one played on our own Rockwell Field. 
Western Reserve finally won the game 2 to 1 after fourteen innings of exceptionally 
fine baseball. 

Kent has always put up a fine brand of baseball and the sincere wish of the class 
of '3 is that Old Kent will always be as successful in the future.

Since Kent State took up wrestling three years ago she has been making great re- 
cords which this year culminated in the winning of two state championships, "Art" 
Stejikal winning the 175 lb. championship and Cap. "Elrie" Arnette the 115 lb. 

Kent was very fortunate this year to secure as wrestling coach, Joe Begala, of Ohio 
U., who himself held state championships for three years. In '27 and '28 Joe held the 
heavyweight championship and in '29 was the 165 lb. champ. 

Coach Begala was handicapped greatly this year by lack of material and those who 
made the Varsity were also handicapped and prevented from reaching their best develop- 
ment by lack of competition to practice on. But from the great showing made by this 
years team we know that many candidates will be fighting for positions next year and 
the handicap will be removed. 

Kent stepped into "big time" competition this year and took on the Ohio State 
"B" squad and the Purdue Varsity. In the Ohio State match, Kelley, a freshman, threw 
his heavyweight opponent in short order. But the match only counted as a forfeit by 
Kent because Kelley was not eligible for Varsity competition. 

The Purdue match was the first athletic relationship Kent ever had with a Western 
Conference team and the whole school was very proud of the team. Purdue only threw 
two of our grapplers and two Kent men won over their opponents on time. 

The class of '30 congratulates Coach Begala and every member of the team for 
their splendid record. 

It was surely a great day for Kent State when Stejskal decided to try out for the 
wrestling team. Since, he has participated in ten bouts in all and has only been thrown 
once. Art won four of his bouts by falls and two on time for a total of six wins. 
He lost his first bout in the National Tournament by the time of only 1:2 3. 

Elrie Arnette, S/ii/c Chaiiipioii, 115 lb. Class 

Scrappy little Elrie Arnette was captain of this year's wrestling team. He has 
participated in wrestling three years and has only lost four matches. Like Art he lost 
by time advantage in the National Tournament. 

Elrie has always been a scrapper and once in high school even tried to beat up his 
teacher. In his bouts he has always carried the fight to the other man. If you want 
to see Elrie move quickly just say, "Rassle."

The men's intramural sports for the year were opened under a different arrange- 
ment than that of the preceding year. Prof. Altmann who was in charge decided that 
more interest would result if divisions were made by fraternities instead of class groups. 
Those competing were Sigma Tau Gamma, Kappa Mu Kappa, and Delta Phi Sigma 
fraternities and the Independents, an organization of all non-fraternity men. 

Each group chose a representative to cooperate with Prof. Altmann in planning 
and carrying out the years work. The committee sure planned an interesting and 
varied program of sports. Practically all sports were included but a marble shooting 

The great variety of events gave every man a chance to find at least one in which 
he could participate. 

The program was opened in the fall by a two mile road race which was won by 
Dan Stratton, of Sigma Tau Gamma. Strawman of the Independents finished a close 

The next event was horse shoe pitching. Each organization had entries in the 
singles and doubles. The outstanding tosser was Bill Sprague of Sigma Tau Gamma who 
did not lose a game all season. 

Then came two rounds of volley ball and two rounds of basketball. At this time 
the Kappa Mu Kappas displaced the Sigma Tau Gammas as point leaders. The Kappa 
Mu Kappas finished the six basketball games of the season without a defeat. The Delta 
Phi Sigmas placed second, winning three and losing three. 

Meantime the Kappa Mu Kappa Volleyball team was also piling up points. They 
finished first again with five games won and one lost.. The Delta Phi Sigmas again 
finished in second place with four wins and three losses. 

The indoor gymn meet contained the following events: 40 yard dash, mile run, 
horizontal bar, standing broad jump, parallel bars, side horse, rope climbing, tumbling, 
and shuttle relay. Delta Phi Sigma won with 3 2 points, 1 8 of which were collected 
by Warnes. The Independents took second place with 21 points. 

Kappa Mu Kappa won the swimming meet with 49 points while Delta Phi Sigma 
placed second with 4 5 points. Edmiston, of the Delta Phi Sigmas brought the crowd 
of over 300 to its feet by swimming 163 feet in the under-water swim. Seiss, K. M. K., 
gathered 19 points for his team while Hildebrant, a fraternity brother, gained another 
16 points. 

At the present time a tennis contest and an indoor-outdoor baseball contest are in 
progress and will extend a number of weeks. An outdoor track meet is planned for the 
latter part of May to conclude the years events. 

The records show Delta Phi Sigma leading with 18 'j points. Kappa Mu Kappa, 
second with 18 points, Independents, third with 16 points, while Sigma Tau Gamma 
has 12 points. 

So the season is drawing to an apparently successful close with any group still 
having a chance to win the cup. The intramural trophy will make a fine display in 
whose home? 

-7 1 1 or f/- 

Coach Begala, in an effort to obtain more opposition for the Varsity, announced 
that he would hold an intramural wrestling meet and award the winning fraternity 
with a cup. 

Fraternity representatives practiced with the Varsity every day and did much to 
strengthen the team. Two nights were spent in the elimination intra-mural bouts. 

The Delta Phi Sigma fraternity won the meet with 39 points while Kappa Mu 
Kappa took second with 24 points. Delta Phi Sigma captured six of the eight first 
place wins. Those scormg first place wins were Edmiston (115), Delta Phi Sigma; 
Adamson (125), Delta Phi Sigma; Kite (135), Delta Phi Sigma; L. Kilbourne (145), 
Delta Phi Sigma; Hagerdon (155), Kappa Mu Kappa; Hayes (165), Delta Phi Sigma; 
B. Kelso (175), Delta Phi Sigma; Knapic (heavyweight). Independents. 

This was the first meet of its kind in intra-mural activities but it provided plenty 
of lively competition between the various groups. It also uncovered some promising 
wrestling material. In all probability it will be presented again next year with the 
same trophy being presented to the winner. Three championships means the permanent 
possession of the cup to the winners. 

The Kent branch of the National Women's Athletic Association was organized 
in May, 192 8, for the purpose of furthering the national motto, "Play for Play's Sake", 
and to develop an interest in Women's Intramural sports at Kent State. 

The Association is now in its second year of activity at Kent State. Every girl 
in the school is eligible to join but before she can do so she must earn fifty points in 
competitive sports sponsored by the W. A. A. 

For the furtherance of interest all the girls are divided into two great rival teams, 
the Yanks and the Rebels. On this basis all girls can earn points for themselves and 
their teams. 

An interesting and varied program was presented to the members of the groups 

during the year. Sports in which points could be won included basketball, volley-ball, 

paddle tennis, handball, clogging, archery, tennis, swimming, track meets, and other 

Several important all-college functions were held under the auspices of the or- 
ganization. A swimming meet, a play night, a track meet and a gym meet were 
some of the more important events. A circus held in the gym provided entertain- 
ment of a newer type. The social dancing held every Tuesday night throughout the 
year was certainly not the least important event. 

The Women's Athletic Association with the co-operation of the physical educa- 
tion major students held a play day at Kent State in which 180 high school girls of 
the county enjoyed the day as guests. 

The W. A. A. makes its grand opening of the year by holding a picnic in the 
fall to which all women of the college are invited. The event is held in the college 
woods and hundreds of girls enjoy the good time. The splendid friendly spirit thus 
engendered is carried into the competitive sports throughout the year. 

At the present time plans are being made for next years program and many new 
events will be added to those now on the program. The W. A. A. is surely doing 
their bit to make our enjoyable college life more enjoyable.

A play day was held at Kent this spring by the W. A. A. Over 180 girls 
representing 18 Portage county high schools enjoyed themselves under the supervision 
of Helen Blake, Portage county supervisor of physical education, and a graduate of 
Kent State. She was assisted by Mrs. Marie Apple, Prof. George Altman, the W. A. A. 
and the physical education major students. 

Registration of the girls commenced at 10:00 o'clock and the rest of the day 
was spent in various activities. The girls were divided into nine groups and each 
group assigned a certain color to designate their respective teams. This division of 
girls into "color" teams was made to avoid any inter-class, or inter-scholastic com- 

The various events on the program included Marching, Virginia Reel, team games, 
apparatus work, relay races, stunts and cage ball. Competition ran high throughout 
the day and the girls thoroughly enjoyed themselves. 

An hour and a half was taken off from 12 to 1:30 o'clock as a rest period and a 
general get-together. During this time the girls also enjoyed themselves in the Lowry 
hall dining room where they were luncheon guests. 

Of course all groups tried hard to win but victory could only fall to the lot 
of one. The "Yellows" was the team which turned in the best score for the days 
events,, A check-up showed that girls from twelve different high schools were 
represented in the group. Mantua Center, Rootstown, Windham, Randolph, Brim- 
field, Paris, Ravenna Township, Garrettsville, Hiram, Suffield, Mantua Village, and 
Deerfield were represented by the "Yellows." 

This was the first play-day ever held at Kent and it should not be the last. 
Officials and girls alike proclaimed the day a great success. It is these little intimate 
contacts with Kent State which create the desire in high school students to later be- 
come affiliated with the student body of Old Kent State. 

A truly progressive step was taken this year which boosted the college 
when Kent State acted as host for the Portage County; the Stark, Portage, 
Summit, and Geauga county, district; and the North-eastern Ohio sectional 
basketball tournaments. The tournaments were held under the supervision 
of Coach Wagoner. 

Hundreds of fine young athletes displayed their best ability and thou- 
sands of their schoolmates, friends, and fond parents writhed on their seats 
unable to aid their gallant representatives. Good, wholesome competitive 
spirit ran high and our only regret is that all could not win. 

Many Kent-coached teams were here as representatives of their districts. 
After three weeks of hectic tournament play. Fitch and Brush finally elimin- 
inated all rivals and were sent as representatives of Northeastern Ohio to 
participate in the state finals at Columbus. They were both fine teams and 
we at Kent could hardly believe our ears when we heard that both teams 
had themselves been eliminated at Columbus. 

Being host to these tournaments enabled Old Kent to receive a great 
boost. Young athletes were greatly impressed with the facilities and oppor- 
tunity that Kent State offers them in athletics during their college careers. 
And no less was the fact that Kent offers equally as great academic op- 
portunities impressed upon the future scholars who followed their team to 
victory or defeat. 

The students of the college made every effort to make the visitors 
feel at home and all seemed like one huge family. The whole college is 
looking forward to the time when her regular enrollment will equal in number 
and spirit with that which filled her halls during the tournament ses-

Beyond the least shadow of a doubt, the most powerful and vital force behind 
intramural activities at Kent, is the intramural Council. Meeting once a week, this 
group, made up of one representative from each organization, wields a gigantic blud- 
geon over the heads of the men of KSC. Yes, Elmer, it even has the director of sports 
in its control. What it says goes -- for naught. 

God Bless College Humor, look what it has given us. 
Without it we could have no jokes in this annual. 
With it the situation is unaltered -- I fear. 

Statistics show that if all the cigaret packages which are discarded daily in the Men's

There were seventeen entirely different methods used to crash the gate at the local

The general idea of football games at Kent seem to be: 

1. That the refs are always paid by the other side. 

2. All the breaks are against our dear alma mater. 

3. The games aren't what they used to be in '22, etc. 

4. The team that wins will make the better citizens.

VE thank the businessmen whose ad- 
vertisements appear in the next 
pages for their Hberal patronage. 
Also the faculty and student body for their 
hearty cooperation, both in work and 
subscriptions. With this assistance the 
production of this annual has been made 
possible. We urge our readers to carefully 
examine the following pages and note the 
messages contained therein. 


Yes, it was a vision; but no waking moment ever brought a clearer 
picture. I stood in the midst of a great throng of people. They held in 
their hands open purses, and kept their eyes fixed in an absorbing gaze 
at the distant horizon. When I sought the object of their deep interest, 
I beheld but a mere speck. However, as I watched it — lo! it drew 
nearer, grew larger, and assvimed a definite form. Then I saw that this 
form — dark, mystical, quadrangular — bore upon its face in shining 
letters of gold — 


The vision became clearer. The great black bulk was being support- 
ed and carried forward by human figures — weary and worn. They looked 
as if they had gone to the relief of Hercules, and he had deserted them. 
Occasionally they sank deep into the mire, and passionately begged help 
of the passers-by. The people, however, though they gazed steadily on 
the sable rectangle and the golden letters, yet they scarcely noticed those 
upon whose shoulders it all rested. At one corner the support was 
"Cookie", lifting like a pillar of the universe and at the same time issuing 
commands to every one in sight. Under the adjacent angle was ""Pib" 
Packard, lifting until his tall form seemed but a dwarf. He was doing 
a valiant work, yet at the same time he was wondering how he ever hap- 
pened to get under such a burden. On the other side was Lucian, lifting, 
lugging, and issuing commands as if he were a general leading a critical 
attack. His spirit was imparted to "Tommy"; and Friday, himself, was 
never more faithful. 

In the shadow of this great form, Jimmy Beck and Mary Bissel, the 
social lions, were roaring. "Red" was muttering to himself about the 
whole thing being against the athletic rules. He appealed to Marie Ku- 
low, who agreed with him that we should keep fit. With them was a great 
literary spirit bearing the cognomen of Pitkin. A scholar, bedecked in 
cap and gown, was Nelle McGee. Mildred Snyder was screaming "What 
am I to do?" 

There was but one placid figure. In unendurable desperation he had 
swooned away. Not however until he had torn his hair and rent his 
clothes. Beside his was a rusting camera. He was our photographer.
